Star Wars out this week: Rogue One and assorted accessories

Well, there’s a movie out this week. Whether you see it first thing Thursday night or wait for the weekend, know one thing: The Rogue One books are out on Friday. Namely, the novelization by Alexander Freed (eBook only,) the Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide by Pablo Hidalgo and The Art of Rogue One. I haven’t seen any of them yet, but based on prior experience I say get the Visual Guide first.

For those looking for a different sort of prequel, there’s Poe Dameron #9 on Wednesday.

It’s been 20 years of StarWars.com

In the latest Star Wars Show, it’s been 20 years of StarWars.com. The site itself has a nice oral history, and on the show there’s a chat with Pablo Hidalgo and Lynne Hale.


Fun fact: One of the reasons I started this blog was that a lot of Jaders weren’t keeping up with news on the official site. Also, I was a message board moderator there, for some reason. Never again.

But seriously, the official site has been a boon to fans, and I’m very happy that it’s continued to grow and change. Happy 20 years, StarWars.com!
